Dave Clark Five Singer, Mike Smith, Dies at 64

Just Two Weeks Before Induction Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

And not only that, he’d been paralyzed for the last 4+ years, spending most of his time in a hospital. He just came home in December.

I’ve always liked this band: “Glad All Over” and “Catch Us If You Can” rival the best pop music of any era.

It would have been nice if he could have received the richly-deserved accolades coming up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But one of the great things about making your mark with recorded music is that your legacy lives on every single time each person hears that music, forevermore.

That is one heck of a legacy, when you think about it.

And it’s hard not to smile and shift into a slightly better mood whenever you hear a song like “Glad All Over”, in any case.
